The Department of Music seeks to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor in Musicology and/or Ethnomusicology, with a global perspective on music and expertise in critical approaches to historiography and/or popular music. Ideally, the scholar in this position will be able to move between the spheres of musicology and ethnomusicology and will do at least some of their research beyond the Western European canon and/or will have a critical perspective on that tradition. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2017. The tenure-track professor will be responsible for teaching and advising at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Courses will include seminars for graduate and undergraduate students, as well as introductory courses for non-concentrators.
